— City officials are encouraging children and families to limit their Halloween trick-or-treating throughout Edmond to the late afternoon and early evening hours of Oct. 31.

The Downtown Edmond Business Association will offer Trick or Treat in the Street from 5 to 7 that evening. Downtown business owners will dress up and hand out candy for the children.

Arcadia Lake's Storybook Forest opens Oct. 23 and runs through Halloween at Spring Creek Park, 2.5 miles east of Interstate 35 on 15th Street.

Storybook Forest is geared for children ages 10 and younger. Children can walk along a tree-lined trail, collecting treats and visiting scenes from classic stories and rhymes including Peter Pumpkin Eater, the Three Little Pigs and the Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe.

Admission is $5 per child Monday through Thursday and $7 per child Friday and Saturday. Parents accompanying a child are admitted free.

Hours are 5:30 to 8:30 nightly. For more information, call 216-7471.

Pumpkin Palooza, sponsored by the Edmond Parks and Recreation Department, will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27 at J.L. Mitch Park. The event is free.
